Irish Film Institute -IRISH SHORTS @ IFI



Total runtime: 74 minutes

The IFI is pleased to launch our new occasional series of dedicated Irish shorts programmes with this vibrant snapshot of contemporary Irish short animation. In recent years Irish animated shorts have garnered significant international acclaim. Most recent is – Julien Regnard’s success with Somewhere Down the Line winner of Best Animation award at Clermont-Ferrand (the Cannes of short films). Whilst Alan Holly’s Coda is fresh from winning at 2014’s SXSW. This programme includes BAFTA and IFTA nominated directors and some of the leading lights of contemporary Irish animation.

Emotionally complex in reach, each of the films presented utilise a vibrant and eloquent visual language to explore relationships in flux, the passage from childhood to adulthood and the gentle, confusing melancholy of mourning. Visually sumptuous and always engaging, Irish short animation has to be experienced on the big screen.
